The following sketch of A.B. Chase was printed in an 1892 issue of the Bangor Advance: "A.B. Chase is also a native of the state that claims the World's Fair City; is 46 years old; still, although young, he served a long term as a member of the 96th Illinois Infantry. He came to Michigan in 1871 and was in business at South Haven for seven years, holding several local offices. In 1878, he opened a grocery and boot and shoe store in Bangor, but the next year accepted a position in Monroe's Bank and when the West Michigan Savings Bank was organized he was elected its cashier, which place has since held, making the bank and its patrons an obliging and efficient official. Mr. Chase likes leading rank in social and religious circles; has successively been selected as Master of Coffinbury Lodge, F.&A.M.; has been continuously a member of the school board for 12 years; a member of the common council for four years; president of the village one term and a number of terms village treasurer. In short, Mr. Chase is a leading citizen and counts the number of his friends by the number of his acquaintances." Much is known of Mr. Chase, but not much is known of his personal and family life. We would like to know more.
